Bob Marley's Greatest Hits NOT From His Legend Album | Lost Reggae Tracks

By Andrew Sachs
Bob Marley, a music icon.  Hard to write anything about him that hasn't already been written.  Can't beat listening to some of his tracks on the way to an early morning surf session or on your ipod on the mountain.

And his most famous album: Legend. A great album, no doubt.  But to me, it seems like for a lot of people, radio stations, websites, whoever, they only know and play the reggage king's songs from Legend!  The "best-known hits" on Bob Marley's Wikipedia page is really just a track list of Legend songs.  When I search Bob Marley on itunes - surprise! - songs from Legend dominate the results.  YouTube - same thing.

Bob Marley's lost tracks.  So I am taking it upon myself to compile a list of Bob Marley's greatest hits NOT from Legend.  I'll call them lost tracks because you'll never hear them anywhere.  If you're a fan of Bob Marley and reggae in general, your collection isn't complete without these songs.  Check them out and let me know what you think.  I'll bet that you've never heard of half of them...
